    I just wanted to say that I bought my copy at a used bookstore for about 4 and then I flipped to the title page and it was ing autographed by John Waters himself


  2. Hester Hester says:

    I'll forever love John Waters for the following reasons1 He has subscriptions to Jet and Women's Wear Weekly magazines2 He hates MCI remember them?3 He attended a matinee of the Carebears movie it was for research4 I now know that Balti once had an angry lesbian stripper who went by the name Zorro and he tells a delightful story about a stripper vomiting off the side of the stage4 He's a fan of Gloria Spencer a 625lb gospel singer How come I wasn't informed of this person's existence until now??5 A wonderfully sweet piece about The Buddy Deane Show the local dance show in Balti that inspired Hairspray6 It's always good to know that Ryan O'Neal is a violent asshole who knocked his son's two front teeth out I live for this kind of useless information7 His love letter to the National Enuirer during its glory days yes the mid 80's was a grand time for tabloid reading Did I ever mention how much I miss the 80's?8 I didn't know that Pia Zadora and Jermaine Jackson did a duet together9 I now have hours ahead of me Googling movies and criminals I just now read of10 He reads James M Cain and reminded I need to read Peyton Place11 His essays made me laugh I haven't laughed like that in a while12 Did I mention the lesbian stripper named Zorro and the 625lb gospel singer Gloria Spencer? Yeah I know I did but I have to mention them again


  3. Arthur Graham Arthur Graham says:

    It's John Waters — bitchy irreverent and just fabulous in general I'm not convinced that readers who aren't already fans of his films will find much value in this but as I read it was almost as if I could hear his singularly smarmy voice floating up from each page That and The Trashmen's Surfin' Bird of course which readers might remember from a fun little montage in Pink Flamingos3 12 stars


  4. Tosh Tosh says:

    John Waters is naturally funny He is one of the few writers that makes me laugh out loud while reading his works Also I really like him via these essays He's a man of incredible style wit charm and of course a great dresser If he called me out of the blue and I don't know him and asked me to send him 10 I would do it without a second thought Remarkable man


  5. Kay Kay says:

    Got a signed edition at Atomic Books in Balti This is a collection of pieces by Walters and it it he emerges as less the infant terrible and as an endearingly sensitive soul But then there's that irrepressible love of the bizarre that veers off in wild tangents Hilarious


  6. Angelique Angelique says:

    I LOVE JOHN WATERS SO MUCH It helps that I saw him live so I can really hear him saying the lines he wrote I'm going to watch everything and read everything because HE IS MY SOUL And man can he recall movies My to watch list has grown exponentially To watch first The Tingler 1959 because Vincent PriceSome favourite bitspg 28 Filthy iceberg lettuce the polyester of greensslam down eight pennies which have no earthly use in today's economy except for insulting waiterspg 58 Every week John I hope there will be an image in the films that I can masturbate to later but I never seem to find oneonce some of the reviews from inmates were sent to producers they replied 'Only convicts should be allowed to write reviews'pg 72 thanking God I was raised Catholic since sex will be better because it will always be dirtypg 172 things that get on his nerves 8 Overly fashion enthused sales people in fancy clothing stores who won't leave you alone to shop for yourself even after you've politely said just looking five times Here's something I really like they continue to gush A stern I wasn't thinking of buying you a present usually does the trick


  7. Rachel Jones Rachel Jones says:

    Holy Crap Batman John Waters is fantastically funny As great as many of his movies are I think his essays are where he gets it spot on Side note While talking on the phone a few years back my friend mentioned he sat next to JW at some breakfast place in Brooklyn I asked what he ordered and my friend was uick to reproach me Honey you think he eats? He drank like 6 black coffees and smoked a cigarette with each oneMaybe JW doesn't need to eat Maybe he's an inediate who sustains himself on outrageous hilarity instead of the passion of Christ? Who knows? Anyhoo I recommend this book for anyone who wants to laugh JW makes me think of a cross between David Sedaris and Andy Warhol Clearly his wit makes him a scathing commentator on fame small town America the Hollywood machine and Catholicism but there's also a lot of love for these things too He can't contain the some kind of delight he finds in all these worlds which makes his writing pretty charmingI wish John Waters could live and write forever


  8. George Huxley George Huxley says:

    Goddam John Waters is great I've never been disappointed by him once Ever He is a god A filth god Haha Films writing art etc What can you ask from this magnificent ex con loving pencil stash wearing crime buff? I would love to hang out with him any day of the week every day of the week He is an inspiration


  9. Parvoneh Parvoneh says:

    I love John Waters and I'm rating this a very high three stars Some of the pieces in Crackpot were really fun but having just read Role Models I really missed his tender lengthy expositions Crackpot has jabs a little less heart and while I can certainly relate to that at times felt so much like writing a 101 Things I Hate as I stood on a crowded subway platform waiting for delayed trains and imagining myself flailing my arms while telling everyone they're horrible it's not as fulfilling as the disgusting yet love fueled stuff Whatever Happened to Showmanship was great made me want to hang out in arthouse theatres pranking people and How To Become Famous toes that line between being serious and admonishing and being ridiculous really successfully In part I think I would have enjoyed this collection if the cultural icons were notable today sorry Pia Zadora Oh I also really loved the chapter about the Buddy Deane Show really fun to read Ladies and Gentlemen the Nicest Kids in Town having already seen Hairspray


  10. Jen Jen says:

    When first reading this book I truly got the concept of write what you know John Waters certainly did I love this book I'll reread it occasionaly for a pick me up I wasn't really what you'd call a fan of his early films but I really grew to appreciate his twisted sense of humor and viewpoint from reading these essays He writes about the real dance show that was his inspiration for the movie Hairspray details his favorite guilty pleasure films and has an in depth interview with Pia ZadoraAmong my favorites are Why I Love Christmas his favorite banned toy Gobbles the Garbage Eating Goat Going to Jail where he describes his stint as a film teacher to hardcore criminals in prison John Waters Tour of LA from which I picked up the term female female impersonator and Hatchet Piece or 101 Things I Hate an inspiration of my own 101 Things I Hate list
